The book sculpture I made has some parts that have to do with H.C. Andersen and parts that are in his stories. The center piece of the sculpture is an old oak tree. The only story which is really in the book on which it stands. One of its roots lifts a top hat. This hat is often associated with H.C. Andersen, so it couldn't miss from the sculpture. Since he wrote stories, another root lifts a small book 'written' by him. In one of the corners is a pea, also a fairy tale from Andersen. And two of his most famous stories can also be found on the book, the steadfast tin soldier and the little mermaid.
This instructable is a collaboration with my girlfriend. She made the top hat and made me make more than one drawing before starting the real build.
